The AIF Institute provides customized educational programs to institutional investors on a standalone basis or in combination with its roundtable discussion forums. The AIF Institute creates bespoke programming for institutional investors (i) covering topics in which investors have expressed interest to AIF, (ii) building upon programs that AIF has successfully delivered to other institutional investors, and/or (iii) sharing the best ideas and best practices that AIF has observed in other institutional investors.
Cultivating industry-leading partners, academicians, and practitioners to provide a custom educational curriculum
The goal of the Institute’s customized educational programs for investors and trustees is to cultivate and deliver industry-leading learning on specific investment topics selected by investors. Timely curricula have included overall investment management, governance, board management best practices, core-investment education, and academic application of investor and trustee core skills.
AIF began collaboration with the National Institute of Public Finance (NIPF) in 2014 and helped to create the nation’s first Certificate in Public Treasury Management (CPTM) program, which was held at Pepperdine University in July 2015.
The state treasurers were sufficiently pleased and invited AIF back to help create and facilitate the Educational Partnership with the National Institute of Public Finance 2017 and 2019 CPTM programs and to have AIF combine its West Coast Investors’ Forum with the NIPF’s alternative investments sessions.
The AIF Institute recently completed the NIPF’s third-consecutive CPTM program in California in July 2019.
The AIF Institute has collaborated with CIOs and AIF’s Board members and member firms to create customized educational programming for the National Institute of Public Finance, the Employees Retirement System of Texas, the Texas Municipal Retirement System, and the Maryland State Retirement and Pension System, and is working with additional states and pensions globally to create trustee and board programs.
